better off had this report not come out? >> probably, and a lot of people in the obama administration are wishing it never came out. what happened was some guy in the national cancer institute was supposed to indicate this to the national institutes of health, which would have communicated it to hhs and didn't do it in a timely way and it took the administration by surprise, when it shouldn't have. >> i'm thinking of that old phrase, don't be so helpful. >> this is about the worst thing. somewhere some of the health reform plans, this obscure agency will have the par to decide what does and doesn't go into insurance plans and that's a big deal. and so -- what i think is going to come of this is nothing's going to exchange with respect to mammograms but this obscure agency will not have its meetings in secret and coming out suddenly with recommendations. >> i agree. >> they will start having public meetings. this panel did not even have a breast cancer expert on it. yet they had three representatives from the insurance industry on it. what's going on here is this this should have been
